did a pathologist look at your tumor and say it was a malignant lesion? There are lesions at the cecum that are not malignant...there are lesions that are tuberculosis which i wonder about since you've had BCG...and he would know if it was bladder cancer or a new primary or as a result of BCG. They should be giving you better answers. Where are you being treated? You might get a second pathology opinion.
Mollypal, So sorry to read of your diagnoses. Have been through my share of cancers also. I know how down one can feel early on and how the whole thought process can ware you out.
It's normal for you to be going through a grieving process. But then you have to pick yourself up and start focusing on a plan to get the cancer out of your system. It is a very tough time and you may feel the cancer is consuming you, but you can get through this. There is a large group of people here to support you.
Wishing you the best.
I was diagnosed with non-invasive Bladder Cancer in November 2009 had TURB and first round of BCG and have been doing follow ups and maintenance BCG series since then and am scheduled for the next round beginning June 1, 2011. Now, last week after a colonoscopy I have been diagnosed with a malignant lesion in my cecum ( the end of my colon). I have no idea if the two are related or what and no one is telling me if they are. I have not had any recurrence of the Bladder Cancer and they tell me they can do a colectomy and get rid of what is in my colon fairly easily unless they get in there and it has spread to lymph nodes which they won't know unless they do surgery. I am 57 years old and I feel like they are chopping me up a little piece at a time. I guess I am just feeling sorry for myself and a little scared.
